In today's world, people can no longer rely on court jesters to check meals for poison or retell Hamlet as a family comedy. Study the versatility of more contemporary performers with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a standup-comedy package from Buddy Flip at The New York Comedy Club (a $190 total value), which includes the following:

  • A six-hour workshop (a $150 value)
  • Two tickets to any show at The New York Comedy Club (up to a $30 value)
  • Unlimited bottled water and soda (a $10 value)

Buddy Flip, a professional comic and comedy-club manager, teaches burgeoning entertainers of all levels the essentials of standup in comprehensive workshops. During the six-hour class—which takes place on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.—students study the rudiments of quipping, from writing to delivery. Every student climbs onto the stage to practice the quick thinking required to gauge timing of a punch line, when to transition to a new topic, and who not to spray with trick boutonnieres. The instructor lets students perform, explore their comedic voices, and write in a comfortable atmosphere that encourages individual growth. An unlimited supply of beverages keeps students hydrated after hours of laughing and imitating a nesting Woodrow Wilson, and two vouchers to attend a performance at New York Comedy Club encourage students to return to take notes on professional standup routines.
